Something About Martin

Posted by on Sep 26, 2014 in New | 0 comments

This is our friend, Martin Rinon

I first met Martin when I came upon small hydroponic lettuce gems he watches over at the Farmers’ Markets MP and I frequent. His wide smile and sweet demeanor is a harbinger of a pure heart.  No matter how many folks scramble and crowd narrow passage lanes—he calls a greeting to us.  First, he hand picks a dark green summer crisp bundle of green; then shares what the Lord has laid upon his heart.

Jacmel is located in Haiti

In March, Martin found himself on a mission field in Jacmel, Haiti.  His team from Calvary Chapel Chino Hills took the gospel to four different high schools, local marketplaces, and a soccer stadium.  Immediately Martin found a new heart for serving God and connecting with hurting hungry Haitian people.  After making a  decision to put school on hold for now, Martin opted to return to Haiti in October.  The cost of his trip is intimidating ($1800.00) –but with financial gifts and prayers for his team, he will soar to Haiti. If this young man’s story touches your heart, he calls it “awesome”.

Declare His glory among the nations, His wonders among all peoples.” –1 Chronicles 16: 23-24
